Winnipeg police nab suspect in decade-old sex crime

  • Print

Winnipeg police have made an arrest in connection with a sexual assault that occurred more than 10 years ago.

Based on DNA evidence, a 34-year-old man already behind bars has been charged with sexual assault and robbery with violence for an incident that happened Oct. 4, 2003 in the 100 block of Princess Street.

Police say a woman, who was 26 at the time, said she was pulled into an alley, sexually assaulted and robbed by two suspects. DNA evidence was recovered, but no matches were found in the RCMP's national DNA databank.

But two months ago, city police were notified a profile match to a suspect had been confirmed.

On Tuesday, police went to the Headingley Correctional Centre and arrested Justin Crow, 34.

He remains in custody.

The investigation continues by members of the Winnipeg Police Service sex crimes unit. Anyone with information regarding this case or the identity of the second suspect is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-6245 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
